Farm Credit Mid-America is joining other Farm Credit System associations to take up the HBCU Partnership Challenge, committing to create or deepen relationships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities, with a goal to expand existing efforts to recruit and retain a diverse workforce.
The Farm Credit System accepted the challenge after discussions with the Congressional HBCU Caucus, chaired by Reps. Alma Adams, D-NC, and Bradley Byrne, R-AL.
Coupled with the challenge is the pledge to award students from HBCUs hired to intern at Farm Credit $3,500 stipends to help offset living costs associated with internships.
“Farm Credit works with the leadership and students of these institutions and others in our four-state territory to cultivate relationships with individuals interested in making an impact in rural America. Today, Farm Credit Mid-America provides current and graduating college students meaningful opportunities to prepare for careers and fund their education through scholarships, career development, internships and full-time employment. We are excited to expand the audience for these opportunities through additional HBCU partnerships,” said Jamie Swaim, Assistant Vice President Human Resources for the agriculture financial cooperative.
HBCUs within Farm Credit Mid-America’s four served states include, Simmons College and Kentucky State University in Kentucky; Central State University and Wilberforce University in Ohio; Fisk University, Lane College, Le Moyne-Owen College and Tennessee State University in Tennessee.
“At Farm Credit Mid-America, we work to secure the future of rural communities and agriculture, and part of that is supporting and strengthening the next generation of agriculture leaders, on the farm, in finance, in science and technology,” said Heather Vidourek, Senior Vice President Human Capital. “This challenge helps all students, including those attending HBCU institutions, have equal access to opportunities to prepare for careers and fund their education.”
